Product Overview

Product Name: KTM 690 SMC (2010)
Brand:

The 2010 KTM 690 SMC was a head-turning supermoto that blurred the lines between streetfighter and dirt bike. Here’s a comprehensive look at its strengths and weaknesses to help you decide if it’s the right motorcycle for you.

Engine and Performance:

  • Thumping Single: The 690 SMC boasted a powerful 690cc single-cylinder engine derived from the Duke 690. This engine delivered exciting acceleration and ample torque for both street and light off-road riding [1]. However, some riders found the power delivery a bit snatchy at lower RPMs [2].
  • Lightweight Package: Similar to its enduro siblings, the 690 SMC prioritized a lightweight design. This resulted in a nimble and flickable motorcycle that excelled in tight spaces and carving corners [2].

Handling and Suspension:

  • Supermoto Prowess: The 690 SMC shone in its supermoto element. The upside-down WP forks and WP shock with PDS (Progressive Damping System) offered excellent suspension travel and control, perfect for aggressive street riding and occasional off-road jaunts [3].
  • Braking Confidence: Brembo brakes provided strong stopping power, crucial for the spirited riding style the 690 SMC encouraged [1].

Other Considerations:

  • Street Comfort: While the 690 SMC could handle city streets, its ergonomics weren’t ideal for long commutes. The tall seat height and firm suspension could be tiring for extended periods [2].
  • Not Quite Off-Road Ready: Although the 17-inch wheels and street-oriented tires offered some dirt capability, the 690 SMC wasn’t built for serious off-road adventures. Consider a true dual-sport if that’s your primary focus [4].

Overall

 the 2010 KTM 690 SMC is a fantastic motorcycle for experienced riders who crave a thrilling and agile street experience. Its potent engine, supermoto-specific suspension, and lightweight chassis make it a blast to ride on winding roads. However, its firm ride and lack of long-distance comfort might not suit everyone, and true off-road enthusiasts should look elsewhere.
